Little League 2009 is a solid baseball title for the Wii. The colorful characters and fields help keep the Little League style intact, and the included commentary adds a nice level of depth to the title. The skill card collection will encourage players to get better and play more; and the customization options will help players from becoming bored with the game. Players might notice that pitching controls not as precise as one would hope, but this is a minor issue in this otherwise fun kid baseball title.

The DS version of Little League 2009 features the same type of tournament gameplay, but with a completely different control scheme. Pitching involves tracing specific routes on the screen for different pitch types, and batting takes a well timed swipe of the stylus in order to get a good hit. For play on the go, the DS version is quite well done and features the same graphical style as the Wii version. Multiplayer is available on the DS providing you have additional Nintendo DS systems around; however you can play some modes with only a single cartridge which is a nice touch for multi-DS households.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
